How to install OptiSigns on Samsung Tizen Smart TVs

 While OptiSigns app is available on Samsung Tizen app store, we still recommend using a dedicated player like OptiSigns Android Player for to following reasons:

  • Samsung Tizen does not allow apps to autostart, including Digital Signage apps like OptiSigns, so not suitable for digital signage unless your team can turn on/off TV every day as part of their schedule.
  • Low local storage, usually only a few hundred MBs available. It's good for streaming YouTube, and Netflix, but for Digital Signage you want your content to be downloaded and cached locally to ensure playback even when there’s network interruption and save bandwidth.
  • OptiSigns app is not available on some Samsung TV models and regions

In short, if you want to play a small simple playlist with a couple of images, videos, and weather apps, and don't mind manually launching the app when Samsung TV is powered on. You can continue to install the OptiSigns app on Samsung TV.

Here are the steps to install the OptiSigns application on your Samsung Smart TV:

Note: Before you start, make sure your Samsung Smart TV is connected to the internet and has been updated to the latest version of Tizen.

You can check for updates by going to Settings > Support > Software Update on your TV.

Step 1: Open the Samsung Smart Hub on your TV

To access the Samsung Smart Hub, press the Home button on your TV remote and select Smart Hub. The Smart Hub is a central location where you can download and install apps on your Samsung Smart TV.

Step 2: Search for the OptiSigns application

Once you are in the Smart Hub, use the search bar to search for "OptiSigns". The app should appear in the search results. If you do not see it, make sure you have spelled the name correctly.

NOTE: if you are in the US and cannot find OptiSigns on the app store, your model is very likely not supported, please consider a dedicated player like OptiSigns Android Player.

Step 3: Install the OptiSigns application

Select the OptiSigns application from the search results and press the Install button. The app will start downloading and installing onto your Samsung Smart TV. The installation process may take a few minutes depending on the speed of your internet connection.

Step 4: Launch the OptiSigns application

Once the OptiSigns app has been installed, you can launch it by selecting it from the Smart Hub or by pressing the Home button on your remote and navigating to the Apps section. Select the OptiSigns app and press the Enter button to launch it.
